Here on the N*rth Germany we have (of course there are more but these have a culture/hype around them):
1) White Asparagus, popular in all over the country, it is harvested from mid April until the end of June. It's usually eaten with potatoes, ham and melted butter or sometimes a sauce hollandaise( Bernd doesn't like it too much). Nowadays they even sell asparagus imported from Greece or Peru, but true patriots buy the local one. Bernd can't await until it's asparagus time again this year, and will prepare it once per week then.
2) Kale, a winter vegetable, eaten from the first frost until it's getting warmer again. It is prepared with all types of meat and sausages, with potatoes and mustard. Very heavy but also gives a lot of energy for hard work in the cold times on the field. There even is some culture grown around that dish, where you go out with friends and family for a walk while drinking schnaps. Then you return to the home/restaurant and eat as much as you can.
Do you have any seasonal dishes you can only eat during a certain time of the year?
I eat asparagus all time of the year.
>or sometimes a sauce hollandaise( Bernd doesn't like it too much)

How dare you
Asparagus makes my piss small horrible so i stay away from it as much as i can. No big loss because it's not that good anyways.
The piss smell is an acquired taste.
I don't understand the german hype for asparagus. It tastes mostly like warm water. Also germs don't hype any other vegetable like that. Which makes sense because boiled vegetables never taste gr8.
This, what's best about the asparagus is the is the hollandaise sauce, the asperagus itself doesn't taste like much.
kill all vegetables
In addition to OP there is also Pears, Beans and Bacon. A nice stew served with of course potatos.
It's not so common here. Actually I have never eaten it.
t. North Lower Saxony
We have kale the entire year in Brazil.
It is very common food in brazilian cuisine, and traditionally served with Feijoada (a BRBR version of a Cassoulet, but made with pig cuts instead of duck meat and black beans instead of white beans) or in the Virado a Paulista (a brazilian plate composed of thin pork t-bones, fried banana schnitzels, white rice, "tutu" - which is a paste of manioc flour and paulista striped-brown beans - fried eggs, pork linguiça, farofa and kale).
It is also very common in portuguese cuisine. Caldo verde (one of the most famous portuguese soups) is made of kale.
